AllMusic Review by

Join the Rejects: The Zonophone Years '79-'81 collects an astounding 70 tracks from Oi! Legends the Cockney Rejects. It’s quite a feat, considering the compilation only covers a two-year period, but between 1979 and 1981, the band’s explosive brand of working-class punk rock found a near permanent spot on the British charts. The collection includes the albums Greatest Hits, Vol. 1, Greatest Hits, Vol. 2, Greatest Hits, Vol.3: Live & Loud!, and The Power & the Glory, as well as numerous rare and unreleased cuts, a pair of sessions from the John Peel show, a handful of demo tracks, and liner notes from founding member Micky Geggus.
